I woke this morning at 6am. I felt like crap but really needed to get some work done since I was pretty much in bed all day yesterday and completed none of my assignments. Making money from home definitely has it's benefits, but it's times like this that have me wondering if I should just be doing something else. Losing an internet connection can be crippling to a work at home business, when all your orders and correspondence is virtual.
It took 4 hours and a couple phone calls to get the situation rectified, and I'm not pleased. I like to get work done before the kids get up and check any internet profits from the previous day. This delay has me a little stressed and I already have a splitting headache so extra stress is not what I ordered.
I'm determined to continue making money online through a variety of sources. Ebay, Etsy, paid blogging, adsense and other programs have paid for all our groceries over the last 4 months allowing Hubster to put aside that money that would have come out of his paycheck. Some he puts into his 401k and the rest we have put into a vacation account. Ultimately we would like to be able to take a nice family vacation at least once a year.
Today I will be looking into other internet options as my current carrier has me less than pleased. I need to keep the cost the same or lower and need to bundle my services (as they are now) to continue saving. Verizon set up lines through our property a couple months back and they will be my first call.
